What I read/am reading:
- Finished The Happiness Advantage: The Seven Principles of Positive Psychology That Fuel Success and Performance at Work by Shawn Achor. Brain science! I love brain science!
- Finished Cloaked in Red by Vivian Vande Velde (who has a really cool name). Several tongue-in-cheek retellings of Little Red Riding Hood.
- Still working my way through the big fat book on the Russian Revolution. I’m on page 134. I’m tearing through that thing like someone who tears through books on the Russian Revolution. Or not.
New books on the block:
A while back, I entered a Twitter contest to win Kiss, Kiss, Bark! from Tanglewood Press–then figured that would be that.
This week, I found out that I won a copy. Kyra was thrilled. So was I.
It looks like a cute and fun read. We both can’t wait to dig in.

Oh dear, I checked out “Happiness Advantage..” on Amazon & It is just pop psych and it IS NOT BRAIN SCIENCE. Your dad did real brain science. Think back & you’ll remember the difference.
Okay, call it brain science light, then. It is a lighter approach, but it’s grounded in actual research, and has a lot of the information that many of the other brain science books I’ve read have. I went in a little bit wary, thinking it was all pop without the science, but was pleasantly surprised.
